For the 4th Marrakech Biennale, Arjona creates a very particular piece in her body of work as it is the first to directly allude to gender policies. Simulating a striptease in which she takes off clothes but does not undress, the artist examines the connotation of "femininity" and the wishes and desires of the public. The revival of the piece shows an androgynous body that fuses the genres and proposes a fluid body territory.
